Behind the Wire Ministries is a 501c3 nonprofit organization established by founders Scott & Dannielle Highberger in 2019. BTW is also a level III certified recovery residence in the state of Indiana. We provide a balance of faith and evidence-based treatment to our incarcerated population, and we offer transitional housing to men upon their release. 


BTW exists to provide practical and spiritual guidance to our incarcerated population and those transitioning back into our society. We believe in order for this to happen successfully, a biblical foundation is key, as well as the support of a healthy environment. BTW practices accountability with an emphasis on mentorship and community.  


Having personal experiences in the addiction and recovery process, our founders started BTW to help our incarcerated population, and it grew into the ministry it is today. As our organization continues to expand, our goal remains the same, it is to provide an opportunity for men to become productive members of our society.


BTW has two campuses, their headquarters is in Loogootee Indiana, and they have another facility in Jasper Indiana. The Loogootee campus offers weekly chapel services that are open to the public on Thursday nights at 6:30 p.m. and Sunday nights at 5 p.m.
